I'm sure you can imagine what my house looks like after pretty much ignoring it for nearly 2 weeks.
I'm sure you can imagine what it would look like even more with 4 poorly attended children inside that have zero concept of picking up after themselves for 10 days.Yeah, I'm telling you my place is a disaster. Problem is, I keep thinking I'm going to get right on it and fix the situation.
And I can't find any motivation. Zero. Nada.
I'm just tired, man!
I'm having a mid-house crisis or something. Someone help me! How do I get out of this funk? How do I get my house and my life back in order?
If we've been friends for a while, then you know that cleaning is not really my strong point.
This was my master cleaning list that was going "to change my life". I stuck to this list for a total of zero times. I never heeded it's clear and simple direction. Not once.
But before you judge me! In my defense! You're going to have a heart attack and die from this surprise, but I was actually doing really, really well with my house, prior to the "other" house project.
No, really, I was!
Hello, I'm right here! I can here you! Honestly-- floors were swept, counters were washed, vacuums were vacuuming and mirrors were shiney and un-licked/blow-fished.
And then, everything just kind of. . . turned to crap.
Let's not talk about all the other parts of my house that are total train wrecks (the car, my bedroom, every bedroom, the garage. . .. ). Let's just talk about my main problem area.
I can't believe I'm going to do this. I'm going to actually show you the problem area in it's present state.
Forget it. Changed my mind.
Alright, alright. GOSH! Pushy.
I will be accepting no questions as to "what the h___ is that on your floor??" at this time.
I said no comment.
This area needs to be tackled. For the good of humanity, it needs some nurturing. Less junk, more storage, and a couple bottles of disinfectant. Plus, my mudroom was never what I really wanted it to be in the first place.
What are my plans? Upper cabinets. Perhaps these from Lowe's. With crown molding, of course.
This totally awesome bench by Ana that will span the length of my kids' backpack wall.
Gah. I guess the first step is to go clean that crap up. Right now, it's equal to having my gums scraped.
